3rd arrest in JC park killing

Authorities originally said they were looking for more than one person after a 17-year-old boy was murdered in a Jersey City park, yet they said only one pulled the trigger.

They now have a third man in custody, who they said was with the accused gunman when Pedro Roman Jr. was killed last Wednesday.

Markell “Sayboy” Brown, 20, was picked up on a parole violation, authorities confirmed.

Tashawn Holmes, 18, has been charged with murdering Rowan at Triangle Park off Old Bergen Road. Police said he squeezed off a half-dozen rounds, hitting Roman in the head. They said he was given the gun by 18-year-old Christopher Grant, who’s also been charged in the killing.
